    I feel sad, that i was not prevailedged to be part of the workshop😖. But in life what one should learn is that what hits you hard is not that you are not incapable, but the chances of you winning and losing is 50/50. Am just 17 and am sure more opportunities of this kind will knock on my door soon, love Young Namibian.

      I would’t sweat it if I was you. The African literary scene is just starting to make its voice felt. There is space for those in it and for many more for many years to come.
